Adam’s Law 

§ 23.1-820. Hazing prevention training; current members, new members, potential new members, and advisors.

Each institution shall provide to each current member, new member, and potential new member of each student organization with new members hazing prevention training that includes extensive, current, and in-person education about hazing, the dangers of hazing, including alcohol intoxication, and hazing laws and institution policies and information explaining that the institution's disciplinary process is not to be considered a substitute for the criminal legal process. If a student organization with new members has an advisor, such advisor shall receive such hazing prevention training.

2022, cc. 693, 694.

The chapters of the acts of assembly referenced in the historical citation at the end of this section may not constitute a comprehensive list of such chapters and may exclude chapters whose provisions have expired.

On February 27, 2021 VCU student Adam Oakes tragically died from the fatal consumption of alcohol in connection with hazing.  Delta Chi has been permanently banned as a registered student organization at VCU.  Students seeking to join a fraternity or sorority are strongly encouraged to review the disciplinary history set forth in the Student Organization Conduct Report  and to further research the national organization of any fraternity or sorority with a chapter at VCU they may be interested in joining, including at www.studentaffairs.psu/edu/piazzacenter
